WATCH: This Iceland Air ad is a great mood-setter for the big game tonight
Wales have run them close but the story of Euro 2016 so far has to be Iceland’s amazing progression to the quarter-finals.
No country with a smaller population has ever competed in a major football tournament and not only have Iceland competed; they’ve won plenty of fans thanks to their excellent football and a clearly recognisable team spirit.
Deserved winners over England in the last 16, Lars Lagerbäck's side face into the biggest match in their history against Ireland’s conquerors, France, on Sunday evening and it won’t be just their own people cheering them on to victory.
If you have hopped aboard the Iceland bandwagon, then this Iceland Air advert, charting the team’s struggles in the past through to their wonderful present, is just what you’ll need to get you in the mood.
